Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to counteract the effects of time, gravity, and sun exposure all without downtime! It is the only non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on the face, neck, décolletage and, chest. It penetrates deeper than all other cosmetic procedures-without cutting-by microfocusing ultrasound waves to generate a thermal effect directly at the skin’s foundational layer. This bypasses the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of new collagen at a depth typically addressed in cosmetic surgery.
While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery or those seeking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. A single treatment can rejuvenate the face by as much as 3-5 years and results last as long as 2-3 years. Results are often immediate but, the full effect appears over 2−3 months as newly produced collagen acts the lift and tighten the skin.
After cleansing the skin and identifying the area/s to be treated Ultherapy practitioner will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. During the treatment, you will be able to tell the collagen-building process has begun because you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited at a precise depth. Comfort levels vary from person to person but, local anesthesia is available if requested. The length of your treatment will depend on your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours.
